Exciting News!

I have some really exciting to news to share with you today regarding the fabulous Crafty Sentiments Designs.

Suzette the wonderful owner of Crafty Sentiments Designs will be showcasing some awesome new stamps over on Create & Craft!  There is a live show This Wednesday the 7th January at 11 am and these new stamps will initially only be available on Create & Craft.  You are not going to want to miss this show.  I was very lucky and got to have a play with just one of the new stamps and I'd like to show you what I did as a quick taster of what's to come.

The stamp I used is called 'Isobel' she is adorable and I made 2 cards with her. 

For my first card I went with a square and used Portobello Road papers and coloured Isobel with reds & blues to match using copics and spectrum pens & pencils.  The rolled roses are cut on the cricut and then added some punched corners and a punched butterfly.




















I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss #269 ~ Anything Goes
Art By Miran #22 ~ Anything Goes 
Sister Act Card Challenge #87 ~ Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' ~ New ~ New stamp
Love to Create #148 ~ Anything Goes
Not Just Cards #10 ~ Anything Goes

And for my second card I wanted a softer more vintagey look.  I went with a rectangular card this time and did lots of distressing of edges, the papers are Santoro and I added part of an old postcard (the large rose picture), added some cream lace and a little stamped tag sentiment, the brad is from the same collection as the papers.  I coloured Isobel using copics and spectrum pens & pencils and the piece of mesh behind her is a paperlace Cricut die cut which I have heat embossed several times using black, antique gold and bronze poders I was looking for a bit of an old rusty feeling, I like how it turned out but needs a bit more practice! lol 




















I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
